Geektastic: Another malapropic idiom for the list.

I was told "you've got that down pack." yesterday.

That would be pat, not pack.....

 

 

 

Saw another  - declaring Marshall law.

 

 

 

(a) assumedly martial

 

but possibly

 

(b) in the Wild West, law declared by the Marshall

None of the above, it means that you're required to use JVM215's or, if you insist, JTM45's, or the boys'll be round.

Configurating routable VLANs using a Firewalla:

 

 

Managed switch: Ten solid A4 pages of instructions including tediously hand-setting a ton of network parameters and configurations in a large number of fields.

 

 

Firewalla: One screen with a few combobox options to choose from.

 

 

Never ceases to amaze me how a couple of geeks with Indiegogo and about four years effort have produced a vastly better product than numerous hundred-million-dollar corporations after decades of work.

Sure, it must depend on the company/product. I use a HP/HPE switch at home and had no problem configuring a VLAN before (when using with a router without VLAN support) and had no problem configuring trunk (link aggregation) support - without a manual.

The basic config isn't so hard, it's the hassle of hand-carrying details about VLAN tags and PVIDs across multiple screens, and then setting up routing across VLANs to allow, for example, access from the management VLAN into the device VLAN but not the other way round, which typically involves even more copying values and whatnot around different screenfuls of text boxes. It was honestly the easiest setup I've ever dealt with.

This made me check it wasn't April 1:

Wellington anti-mandate protesters have been seen wearing tin foil hats, as some baselessly claim they are being targeted by “tech weapons” directed at them.

Smile? I nearly wet myself laughing.

But, on closer inspection, you find that it's a "registration of label" thing, and nothing has actually shipped.

When 30 minutes before a flyover a green, flashing LED lights up on the Lego ISS model and announces a clear view of the sky (from the online weather/ceilometer of the airport) and then 5 minutes before the event (from NASA data) a red, flashing LED prompts you to go outside.  On the smartphone comes a push message (from HA) from which direction to expect it. I think I've taken the (very simple) Home Assistant integration a bit too far in the direction of the child in the man, haven't I?

My son bought the Macbook M1 pro, now he's banned here in my house (not really, but with the M1 max he would have). 😉

This headline in the Independent:

 

 

California trucker ‘freedom convoy’ headed to DC disbands after one day when only five rigs reach second stop

 

 

Organisers of the “US Freedom Convoy” - which had been expecting up to 2,000 truckers prior to its departure from Los Angeles on Friday - disbanded the caravan and cancelled all associated rallies on Saturday after only five rigs arrived in Las Vegas.

 

 

May many others follow their lead.

I bought my wife a bottle of champagne to celebrate her success in getting a new job.

It's from a boutique producer whose vineyards are in a French village called Bouzy...!

I believe less is more. I have a Bluetooth USB adapter and a Logitech Unifying USB adapter on my desktop. I tried using Bluetooth only (my logitech keyboard and mouse work with Bluetooth) but audio being sent from computer to Amazon Echo device was breaking up.

 

Bought a new Bluetooth 5.0 USB adapter (the old one was 4.0 or who knows what) and this single adapter now connects my keyboard, mouse, Amazon Alexa and headphones without a sweat. No sound drops anymore. 

 

Pretty happy for a $25 device.
